Monthly Goals, June 2016

Just like that, May is over.

June Goals
And what a month May was! It was our first month of no school. That alone seems crazy. Have we really been out of school for a month already?! We went to a NASCAR race, ran a half marathon and spent a weekend out-of-town. May felt a bit like a whirlwind to say the least. With the busyness the past month brough,t it didn’t leave much time for working on the goals I set. Let’s see how thing went anyways.


*Keep posting 4-5 days a week.
*Work on my Pinterest strategy and growing followers to 1,000. (Take two)
*Reformat 50 blog posts since my WordPress transition.

I was WAY to ambitious on that reformat goal. I managed to do about 25 and sure there were days *cough* weeks *cough* that I didn’t do any at all. But hey, its pretty much summer. I’ll get them all done in… about 2 years.

When I wrote this I had 1,050 followers on Pinterest. So unless I have a massive un-following I seriously kicked that goals butt buy gaining 103 followers this month.

May Blog
*Go to a car show.
*Family milk shake or donut date
*Do something spontaneous?!

Done, done and done. I say deciding to go to a baseball games an hour before it starts and running a half marathon with little to no training are spontaneous enough!

May Family

*Complete half marathon #5
*4-5 workouts a week.
*Get diet in strict check this month.

The race is over. My workouts have been going great, but I wouldn’t call my diet strict. Better, but not strict. 

May Fitness

*”Summer” morning devotions with girls. 
*Continue reading.

And now is when you hear the massive explosion of failure go off. Mornings have been totally unorganized around here. I have to get a grip on this one folks.

Home School-
* Start lesson planning for 2016/2017
* Shop for some used curriculum that I need

Lesson plans are underway, more on that later this week. I also have almost everything I need for school next year. I have about 4 more books I need to gather and I am praying I can find some of those used too.

May homeschool
*Work on our spring bucket list
*Date night.
*Get out of town
*Two Girls Nights

I’m a bit shocked that all of these happened, but they did! Our spring bucket list has 4 things left on it and hopefully we’ll cross a couple more of those off this week. I really think we could actually finish the whole list by the weekend with a little bit of luck.

May Random
All in all May went a lot better than I expected it to. I really missed the mark in some areas but did pretty well in others. Now to set some new goals for the month of June. It took every thing I had to not just stop with go to the pool.

  1. Overall you had a great month of goal crunching! Life happens and something you don’t get as much crossed off as you think, but I think you did great. It’s summer, relax. πŸ™‚

    1. I hope you find something that works. But hey, at least your summer just started. We’ve been at it for far too long to still be a train wreck :P.

  2. Man you kicked butt again on your goals!!! I’m constantly amazed how well you do. And seriously I can’t believe you guys have been out of school for a month already?! The summer is already flying!

    1. I know :(. I was just making out back to school plans yesterday too. We start back on August 8th…. that is a record for us and I am NOT happy about it one bit. But a week off in September means an extra early start.

  3. Man you did great on your goals this month! So jealous you’re in summer mode, I want to be in summer mode too! So great that you get to spend so much time with your girls. I need to be better about IG too…I can do it!

    1. You have a pool in your backyard and live in CA?! Isn’t that like endless summer ;).I hope you find summer mode soon friend. You totally can do it!

  4. I really love your goals and that you do so well on them each month! I haven’t had a chance to make an offiicial goals post, but I’ve been trying to grow my instagram following – it’s very slow going!

  5. I love your June goals! You did great on your May goals! I am quite the opposite of you…my diet is in check, but I haven’t worked out in forever! Too bad we live so far apart, we could be each other’s accountability partner!

    1. You should! And don’t forget to join the link up too! I am so glad you found my space. I keep seeing that we hang out in the same circle and had been meaning to go visit you for a week or two now :).

  6. Oh you will do so good hosting the co-op Kindergarten! How fun! What are your resources for used curriculum books? It never hurts to ask… πŸ™‚

  7. Get your butts in church this month. Even if it’s just once. I’m with you on the slacking but let’s hold each other accountable.

  8. I would definitely call you spontaneous in May! And how fun to bring Marissa on a girls night!!!

  9. You accomplished so much in May!! I’m totally in awe of running the half with the training you speak of. You kick butt, lady!! I can’t wait to see you crush June’s goals!

  10. I love that you do monthly goals and keep yourself accountable! And now I really want to run another half – I miss those races!

    1. Nothing like the worry of public shame to keep a girl motivated.

      I bet there are some AMAZING half’s up around St. Louis. There is the race the Cardinals do every year up there too. Someday I am going to make the trip and do that one.

    1. Haha! I don’t think my girls would let me get away with that one. They are fish and LOVE the pool. I could do some deep cleaning too. Things can get way out of hand WAY to fast.

  11. You are my hero that you can do 5 to 5 posts a week. I wish, but especially during the summer 3 is about my max πŸ™‚ You go girl and keep rocking these goals!
